Spritziger, sehr fruchtig zitroniger Antrunk. Leicht säuerlich, frisch. Säuerlich mild und cremig bleibend, zum Schluss zusätzlich etwas bitter. Ganz ok.

(Old BA rate - tap)
Poured with a nice frothy, foamy white head. Hazy straw yellow/orange color. Aroma is yeasty, lemony, touch of cloves and bananas as well as a bit sour. Very much expected for the style, and goes beyond others in this dept. actually. Nice weisse characteristics all show up on time, very mild banana notes, cloves, and a good deal of tartness at the end. Really refreshing. A little creamy, smooth and almost medium in overall MF. Carbonation could have been a bit more present for style. Really refreshing, and easy to quaff. No off flavors, and a fine example of the style. No trouble here

Wheat beer made with quinoa. Pale gold in colour and as opaque as a normal wheat beer. A pronounced sweet citrus boiled sweet flavour fades into a bready aftertaste. fiulijn (20516) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 8, 2009
Draught at the brewpubPyobon (1404) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 9, 2009
Cloudy blond color. Light spicy aroma. Dryish and spicy mouthfeel, some wheat; more biting than common Weizen, but I don’t know if it’s the quinoa.
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2009 Draught @ 1516. Cloudy yellow with decent white head. The aroma was lemony with a hint of yoghurt. Medium body, well carbonated. The flavour has a refreshingly lemony start with a good measure of complex esters giving banana and yoghurt hints and with a hint of bitterness in the finish. A refreshing beer with a nice balance between complex tastes and great drinkability.

On tap. Hadn’t seen a beer brewed with this. Color was a cloudy, dirty gold. Aroma of sweet malt, banana and some grainy notes. Flavor of sweet with a good dose of banana. Quite tasty, with not as much grain as the aroma. potbeerjob (1343) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 1, 2009

The citrusy, herbal nature of this quirky Weizen digs ditches into the typical doughy yeast and bananas esters and make it quaffable, if not curious.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A layer of foam covers the cloudy pale yellow.
-The quinoa is well integrated, but I do not see what it adds other than novelty.
-Hop bitterness is spicy, herbal and dry. Its intensity is somewhat unusual for the style, methinks.
-Carbonation is expansive, yet the body remains comfortable.
On tap at the brewpub.
